Newsweek's best high schools

Every year Newsweek ranks best high schools in the country. It's an interesting read but there are definite flaws in their ranking system. I can speak specifically about Tech, as I've got 2 kids there: they offer course above AP level but don't get credit for them in this system. They also make every kid take the AP at the end of a course - other schools let kids opt out. So, the overall average of AP scores at Tech is lower.

Here are all NYC schools that made the list:

#3 Stuyvesant

#13 Staten Island Tech

#19 Townsend Harris

#62 Brooklyn Tech

#63 HS for Math, Science and Engineering

#133 Bard Queens

#188 Eleanor Roosevelt

#221 Manhattan Hunter Science

#302 Millenium
